The best new singles are those that catch us completely off guard, and that is exactly what Schoolboy Q has done with the release of his Kendrick Lamar assisted latest, “Collard Greens.”
Debuting online shortly after midnight this morning, June 11, “Collard Greens” serves as one of the first bits of audio to surface off Q’s upcoming album, Oxymoron. The beat created by THC and co-produced by Gwen Bunn offers the MCs a thickly layered bit of drum and bass goodness to ride to, but it’s the verses that will have you talking and tweeting for days to come. Both Lamar and Q go in on everything from life, to the rap game, to success, and everything in between. In the midst of this, both artists also flex their rhyming muscle by delivering multiple flows with various speeds and cadences. It’s a true audio treat for hip hop fans, and you can stream the goodness that is “Collard Greens” by clicking on the stream available below.
“Collard Greens” has already found its way onto iTunes, but those waiting for Oxymoron are going to have to be patient a bit longer. While we wait, comment and let us know your thoughts on Q’s latest.
